We describe a case of Budd-Chiari syndrome, secondary to a hypercoagulable state, which produced a mass lesion on computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations. The mass simulated a tumor, but proved to be an area of hemorrhagic necrosis upon biopsy. The finding of a space occupying lesion may not always indicate a tumor in a patient with the Budd-Chiari syndrome. The causes, pathologic changes, and radiologic findings of Budd-Chiari syndrome are discussed.
